Specialty: A legendary Mee Goreng stall that’s been around for 80 years
Mee Goreng & Mee Rebus can be found anywhere in Penang but hunting for an awesome one can be quite the adventure. First up on the list is an awesome one that is a favourite of the AwesomePenang team, Bangkok Lane’s store. You know, we have a saying in Penang: if a stall’s food doesn’t taste good, it’ll be gone in 3 years. This Mee Goreng store has been here for 80 years (that dates back to the 1930′s!), so what do you think?

5. Ah Lai Cafe Under the Big Tree
Specialty: More famously known as “Cafe Under The Big Tree”, unique for its location
Old Town-style modern coffee houses are popping up at an alarming rate all over Penang, so it’s definitely refreshing to find that traditional and awesome coffee shops like this still exist today. It serves very simplistic breakfast such as eggs and toast and also some varieties of noodles. But really, it’s the style and nostalgia of the place that’ll really grab you

6. The Cheapest Dim Sum in Penang – Dim Sum Food Restaurant
Specialty: The cheapest dim sum you can find in Penang with outstanding quality, what else can you ask for?
What’s next is our Penangnite’s favorite Sunday breakfast iwht our families, dim sum! Being a general lover of dim sum, I’ve visited many dim sum outlets before and normally find myselff either disappointed with the taste or shocked by the price. Well, give this place a shot, you’ll definitely come to enjoy it, I know I did.
